My tried-and-true classic for healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels!

My original Berberine formula is where it all started—the tried and-true classic I’ve been using successfully with hundreds of my patients—some of the most health-savvy and discerning consumers around. So it’s no surprise how many letters and emails of appreciation and gratitude I get at the Whitaker Wellness Institute, nearly every day still, months after Berberine debuted.

The plant alkaloid berberine, revered in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine but largely ignored elsewhere until very recently, has now become one of my most powerful natural therapies for supporting healthy blood sugar.

All in all, Berberine helps support:

  • Normal blood sugar levels
  • Insulin sensitivity
  • Healthy total and LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides
Berberine has turned my life around. As a pharmacist, I believe everyone should know about this. Berberine and diet have given me a new life.”*

Proven blood sugar benefits!

The latest research is compelling. A 12-week clinical study showed that Berberine is effective at improving blood sugar. What’s more, research shows that Berberine also supports healthy blood lipid levels! And since we’ve started using it as a blood sugar remedy with our patients, the results have been astounding. I am convinced that this is one of the biggest blood sugar breakthroughs in recent years.Read more about the two-part study and the origin of berberine here.

My Berberine gives you the full research dose

With Berberine, most people see an improvement in fasting glucose after about two weeks. Everyone is different, however, so stick with my recommended daily dose of 1,500 mg, and I fully expect you’ll see significant improvements in your blood sugar, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels.

I urge you to join the many, many others whose blood sugar, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglyceride numbers have been dramatically affected—thanks to Berberine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fleurdelis I must say that I was skeptical at first, but now I am just plain impressed. I ordered these to try to lower my cholesterol. Within 2 months my total cholesterol dropped [...]. My LDL dropped [...]. They also have had a positive result on my fasting glucose levels (which I wasn't as concerned with) but it is also impressive. I had researched clinical trials for Berberine before my purchase here, and I am pleased with the results so far. Hopefully the Berberine will continue to drop and get my LDL into the "Normal" range. The only downside that I see is that the price for one bottle has risen a whole $5 per bottle since I originally purchased them only two months ago.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from berberine I thought I was gettinag somewhere with this in the first two weeks as well as using the Glucose essentials. But I am getting inconsistent results. But I continue to take it in the hope my body will utilize it. Not sure it will and haven't found anything that works. But I keep trying.

My cholesterol went from 259 down to 199 and my triglycerides went from 576 down to 410 and I attribute this to Berberine and Omega 3 defense. Thanks Dr. Whitaker for you awesome products.

Scientific Support

The two-part study showed that 1,500 mg of berberine daily achieved significant improvement in both fasting and postprandial blood glucose levels. A second double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 110 participants not only backed up the results from the previous study, but showed even more benefits of berberine, including a full 25% decline in both total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, as well as lower triglyceride levels.1

That’s because Berberine works by targeting an ancient regulator of metabolism, the activated protein kinase (AMPK) enzyme. AMPK regulates glucose uptake by your cells and the synthesis of glucose transporters—which helps move glucose out of your blood and into your cells, where it belongs. Berberine may also increase the number and activity of the insulin receptors on your cells, promoting insulin sensitivity. On top of that, AMPK facilitates the burning of fatty acids in your cells, which is why it’s a powerful tool for helping keep blood lipid levels in check.

Where does this amazing phytonutrient come from and where has it been all these years?

Berberine is a plant alkaloid, a naturally occurring chemical compound found in herbs such as goldenseal, Oregon grape, barberry, and goldthread. While you may be able to find berberine in a few supplements here and there, it’s rare and unlikely you’ll find the dose proven to impact your blood sugar levels—which means a lot of folks are missing out on the most powerful benefits.

That changes with my Berberineformula, as it gives you the full research dose of 1,500 mg, shown to support blood sugar, cholesterol, and triglyceride levels. And since the AMPK enzyme is such a critical piece of the metabolic process, the benefits of Berberine are continuing to emerge; already there are suggestions that it can help with blood pressure, healthy weight, advanced immune function, and more.
